Rights Centre

Rights Centre is where the business of publishing is enabled. This is the area dedicated to the publishing and audio-visual rights market within Salone Internazionale del Libro di Torino.

The area is designed for all the Italian and international publishing houses, foreign rights managers, literary and scouting agencies, film/TV agencies and production companies.
Rights Centre will take place from Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 May 2022, and the professional activities (meetings, forums and events) will run from Wednesday until Friday evening. The fair opens to the public on Thursday 19 and closes on Monday 23 May.
Rights Centre will again be held at Centro Congressi Lingotto, close to the fair pavilions and easily reachable by metro from the city centre.

About us

“Salone del Libro di Torino and its Rights Centre are crucial days in my calendar. At IBF I have done business with publishers I would otherwise never have met, been introduced to writers whose stories have enriched my life, and been inspired by the quality and professionalism of the attendees. I encourage everyone I meet to attend!”
Suzanne Brandreth –Cooke International, Canada 

“The IBF at this year’s book fair was incredibly vibrant. I welcomed the opportunity to gain a clearer sense of the Italian publishing market’s international appeal. The fellowship program was a productive and lively experience that I am excited to recommend to other scouting and development colleagues.”
Megan Reid - FX Networks

“The Turin book fair 2018 was a fantastic discovery for me. Efficiently run and well-selected, I had some incredibly fruitful meetings and made some excellent new connections.
Most importantly it opened my eyes to new kinds of collaboration between the worlds of books and film, and as such the book fair is doing something that no other fair in the world does.”
Francis Bickmore - Canongate Books
